Is there an autoinstaller (Windows, Linux, Mac) ?

Dolibarr is a GPL OpenSource project. Like a lot of other GPL projects, what is distributed is sources. Packaging for an automatic installation is most often provided by the OS distribution you use.

If you are on Linux or BSD systems, this is easy to use because there is a lot of packages can be found "ready to use".

For Windows or MAC, it's not so simple... Because such OS does not provides software repositories ready to work nor packaging solution for external applications used by Dolibarr (Apache, PHP, MySQL), Dolibarr installation can seems difficult to do for unexperienced users. There is however special packages that install Dolibarr but also all prerequisites (Apache, PHP, Mysql) with a simple .exe or .dmg file.
